Love it! Sounds great together! I was actually considering Alexander for a first name. It must feel good to have a name picked out!

Love it!! Makes it kinda more real, right? DH have made a short list but still on the fence.... but feels good to being on the way to giving this kid an identity!

I'm not normally super keen on the same first initials, I think these two really worth together! Austin is SUPER cute!

Oh, I just realized Austin Johnson kind of rhymes! Smile

Heather - Me either.. or ones with the same amount of syllables.. Like Austin Justin.. :nono: Having a longer middle name is a little odd to me but it sounds good so far. Smile

The only other name we have that we're pondering is Austin Bram.. But DH really lit up when I tossed out Alexander..

He'll be AJ for short. Biggrin

I love it! I love the name Austin and I love AJ for short. You've got my seal of approval. My little girls name has the same amount of syllables. Julie Frances. But Frances takes a lot longer to come out of the mouth, so... it doesn't count...right? Right??

I hear what you're saying about syllables. I normally lean towards long names (like Kennedy)...but our current girl name is short, Cora. Now with a first name like Cora, you sort of need a longer middle name...

See, they sound awesome together because they don't have the same root.. Like Austin Justin have "ustin" in common and it just sounds like a competition.. Julie and Frances have different vowel bases so it works beautifully!!!! :love10:

Julian is cute! Liked it ever since the movie Twins with Arnold Schwarzensomething and Danny DeVito (sp?) But I don't think I liked it enough for my child.. Smile

There is a FB page for a little boy named Julian that passed at the age of 5.. for an unknown reason. So sad and after I saw that, the name came to me and that's when I mentioned it to DH. So very sad Sad

Julian is cute. Always makes me think of Julian Lennon.

Did you purposely pic the same first initial for the first and middle names or was it just a fluke?

We still don't have a girl name...but we have time.

We had nothing special we were looking for in a middle name.. Just whatever sounded good!

Ahh, too funny... Julian crossed my mind. I like it, but I don't think it's DH's style. Julian Jamison does remind me of a porn star, LOL... jenna jameson? Was she on celebrity rehab with Dr Drew? LOL. Something like that. Too funny.

ETA - Just looked and she wasn't on celebrity rehab, lol... I can't remember who I have her mixed up with. LOL

Ermmm...you don't have her mixed up with anyone. Jenna Jameson was a porn star. :Whistle:
